\ ==Reviews== \

Greg Edmonson's fractured landscapes show traces of memory that linger as layers within the spaces of our mind. These are imaginary landscapes, but within the rich classical Western landscapes tradition. They could be anywhere everywhere, which is why they seem so familiar, and yet not. These contemplative musings of a reflective thinker are looking through veils of timelessness to honour the artistic masters of the past. We can find the dramatic skies referencing the 17th century Dutch artist Ruisdael. From the 19th century, there is the poetry of Corot's French naturalism, the classicism of Britain's Constable, and the unadulterated awe of Germany's master, Casper David Friedrich. (Anne Severson, Fast Forward Magazine, June 2000)

"I think of my landscapes as inkblots for the imagination," says the painter. Parts of the image, like parts of our individual memories, and the collective memory of humankind, are lost behind the shadows. That's where the archaeological mysteries lie - in the buried layers of paint and time. "The shadows allow us to use our imaginations". The addition of the grid enhances the illusion of time and space, mimicking the fragmentary images that we see as we move our eyes across a scene. (Jennifer MacLeod, Galleries West Magazine,Summer 2002)
